Care Instructions

Girard-Perregaux is available around the world to provide you with the best service and to ensure that your Girard-Perregaux watch receives the greatest care. If you need to repair or service your timepiece, we invite you to consult one of the Girard-Perregaux-approved retailers listed in the Distribution section.

Your Girard-Perregaux watch is an exceptional product that has been crafted with the utmost care. It will provide you with lasting service if you take the following precautions: Maintenance/precautions

  1. Do not use any corrosive cleaning products on your watch; use a soft, dry cloth instead.
  2. Avoid any violent impacts.
  3. Avoid wearing a metal bracelet on the same wrist as your watch to prevent damaging your timepiece.


  1. The crown and push-pieces of your watch must not be used underwater. If your watch features a screw-down crown, you must ensure that your watch never comes into contact with water whilst the crown is unscrewed.
  2. Rinse your watch in clean water after wearing it in the sea. Avoid wearing watches with a leather or satin strap in the sea, as this can accelerate wear.
  3. Avoid any sudden temperature changes and exposure to high temperatures such as saunas.
  4. Girard-Perregaux watches are water-resistant up to 3, 5, 10, 30, 100 or 300 ATM depending on the model. The water-resistance of your watch has been tested in our workshops.


  • - Thanks to the diverse range of developments led by the Girard-Perregaux Manufacture, you are able to choose from three types of movement:
    • 1. Quartz movement, which requires no winding.
    • 2. Mechanical movement with manual winding, which needs to be wound daily.
    • 3. Mechanical movement with automatic winding, which also needs to be wound manually if the watch has not been worn for a while. This type of watch needs to be worn every day (for a minimum of 14 hours) to build up the power reserve necessary to function correctly without needing to be wound.
  • - Avoid leaving your watch immobile for long periods of time. Wearing your watch regularly will help prevent the oils in the movement from thickening.
  • - We recommend that the watch’s movement and water-resistance are checked every two years by a Girard-Perregaux-approved retailer to ensure precision and reliability.
